GDS COURT CASE
       
It is informed by our Advocate that the GDS court case filed by NFPE & AIPEU GDS has been dismissed as our Advocate was not present in the CAT Principal Bench when the case was called for argument by the Bench. Our Advocate was in the Delhi High Court, attending another case, when the case was taken up by CAT. Our Advocate has informed that he will take action to revive the case as early as possible. The relevant portion of the Email received from our Advocate is reproduced below for your information:


"For the past many dates, someone or other was present in the CAT, just in case the matter was called out, since it was on board everyday. On 31.07.2019 the matter was at item 19 and did not reach. On 08.08.2019 it was item 20. UNFORTUNATELY I WAS IN DELHI HIGH COURT and till lunch time item 11 was Bench. Post lunch my colleague at CAT whom I had engaged to keep a watch in the matter (as everyday it is impossible for me to be present in the CAT from 10.30 AM to 4.30 PM) informed me that a mentioned item 60 had been taken up. It appears that towards the end of the day this matter was taken up and has been dismissed. We have requested the Court Master to upload the matter so that we can immediately move an appropriate application for hearing of the matter on merits or approach the Hon'ble High Court, because in any case CAT Principal Bench is bound by its own order. I will revert with more information once the order is uploaded "

Dear Comrades,
We are in touch with our Advocate to revive the case at the earliest. Further details will be informed, as and when received from the Advocate. The matter will be discussed with Secretary General, NFPE, as NFPE is also a party in this case.

Fraternally yours,

IPPB rolls out of Aadhaar-enabled payment services (AePS)


IPPB has now become the single largest platform in the country for providing interoperable banking services to the customers

To avail these services, a customer with an Aadhaar linked account can simply authenticate his/her identity with fingerprint scan

India Post Payments Bank (IPPB) on Monday said that it has rolled out Aadhaar enabled payment system (AePS) services. With this, IPPB has now become the single largest platform in the country for providing interoperable banking services to the customers of any bank. Union Minister for Communications and IT Ravi Shankar Prasad today announced the rollout of AePS services on IPPB's first anniversary.

Things to know about IPPB's AePS services

1) With AePS services, any person with a bank account linked to Aadhaar can perform basic banking services such as cash withdrawals and balance enquiry irrespective of the bank they hold their account with.

2) To avail these Aadhaar enabled payment services, a customer can simply authenticate his/her identity with fingerprint scan and Aadhaar authentication to complete a transaction.

This fulfills PM Narendra Modi’s vision set forth at the time of launch of IPPB last year of ushering in economic transformation by bringing banks to the doorsteps of the villagers and poor. I wish IPPB and its management all the success in its future growth journey."
